Attorney General: Gang sweep in Merced, Madera counties nets 101

Dozens of young men, many covered in gang tattoos, were led away in handcuffs at sites in Merced and Madera counties Tuesday, as agents from numerous law enforcement agencies conducted a gang sweep resulting in 101 arrests -- including five high-ranking members of the notorious Nuestra Familia gang. Code-named "Operation Red Zone," the largest ever gang sweep in Merced County was conducted by agents on 31 teams who served 72 arrest warrants at more than 50 locations, on charges ranging from attempted murder to drug trafficking.
